The r eec- Mty of a Navy Ya;dard station on that

a.-to red no i lustration. 1 therefore recommeni
that I < ?ftren shall authorize such an establishment

that she w ill be ready for sea in the course of the
ensu tag Spring. The Fulton and the Alleghany,
steamers of the- first class, have recently undergone
extensiv e aiti ratal DS anil repairs, and are each uear
ly prepared for service and steps have been taken
to rehUild the Princeton, a steamer also of the Brat
c.'sss. The 'team frigate Mississippi, m her long
enuse of near two years and a half in the Medi?
terranean, underwent no repairs, except ? ich is
were effected on board, but yet retained her entire
efTiciri'i ? . - a man-of-war, and the General conduct
sed mat 'C< ment of the vc-sel and her crew reflecta
the highest credit on her - omm-mder. She w ill he
tranafcrred to Philadelphia for the purpose of test?

and to undergo such repairs and Imp! OiBBaf Ills as
may he found neeeawty.
